The Scripts Directory

Your Patchworks installation kit includes several BeanShell script files (see Patchworks script library) in a special directory named scripts. Each script file contains one or more functions that can help automate a modeling task.

When Patchworks starts up, it automatically loads any BeanShell scripts (i.e. all files matching pattern *.bsh) it finds in the scripts directory. The default installation path for the scripts directory is:

C:/Program Files/Spatial Planning Systems/Patchworks/scripts

Each script file included in your Patchworks installation kit contains comments describing the purpose and syntax of the functions it provides. Use your favorite text editor application (eg. Notepad) to view script file contents.

You can also write your own functions if you would like to automate a task or process that is not already available from the library of functions provided with your installation kit.
